|Quiche Lorraine by Ron|
|Ron's signature apple pie|
|I eat at the counter in the corner of the kitchen|
|Ron's breakfast - everyday|
|My guilty pleasure (and the reason I have a 'tube' around my waist)|
5. How often do you eat out (in a restaurant)?
|Cracker Barrel - it's the friends not the food|
It is expensive to eat out but I can afford it (as long as I have my present part-time job) and it is worth it to me to spend time with my friends.
|Well off retirees dining at MIXX in Rehoboth - expensive but good|
|Hawaiien Wedding Cake - Ron Style|
|1969 - Philadelphia, PA home - Coq au Vin served|
|Dinner is serve at our home - very rare|
11. Have you ever tried recipes from blogs?
|Lemon Pound Cake from a blog - scrumptious!|
|Christmas dinner at Mom and Pop's 1969|
|My signature oven baked potatoes in olive oil with skins - delicious!|
|My Mom making her salmon patties - she could do it with her eyes closed - this was the last time she did made them, she died shortly thereafter - I'm glad I have this picture of her smiling making her 'patties'|
|My father making his signature fresh garden veggie soup|
|What I feel like doing when I see a 'prime' rib|
I like both but I do more cooking than baking except for cakes. I don't eat bread anymore. I did make wonderfully tasty yeast rolls but I have weaned myself totally from bread. I don't need it.
Years ago when I used to have company over for dinner to try and impress them I was making a Beef Stroganoff. While my company of three was sitting at the table waiting me to put the finishing touches (stirring in the sour cream) I opened the door to the cabinet above the stove to reach for a serving plate for the beef stroganoff and a glass pie dish fell out right into the pan of beef stroganoff! I couldn't believe it! Here I had rubbed each piece of thinly sliced, expensive, tender beef individually with garlic and had everything JUST RIGHT and this pie dish crashes into the frying pan where my beef stroganoff was residing. I tried to pick out the shards of glass from the pie pan all the while assuring my company 'all was well'. My hubby Bill saw what I was doing and how upset I was (I was very young at the time and felt the need to impress my company unlike now...whatever, whatever) and he wisely came out into the kitchen and, which he was patting me on the back to calm me down, said "Ron, you can't serve this. It has glass in it." I tried to convince him that I got out all the pieces of glass but was unsuccessful. The only other food I had in the house was some of those awful frozen veal patties that tasted like the tongues of shoes. THAT meal was my BIGGEST DISASTER every. I remember it as clearly today as I did that day about 45 years ago. Lesson learned, if you break a pie dish in the meal you're serving, don't serve it to your guests because you might injure or kill them.
